Is Home Inspection Necessary when Buying New Construction in Virginia?

Real Estate Agent with Samson Properties VA0225077251

Buying a new home in Fairfax or Loudoun county of Northern Virginia area many of the buyers don't see the advantages of getting the home inspection.


Home buyers don't see the reason why they should go out and spend additional $$$ when they can trust the builder is building the home upto the code and county inspectors are there to check on their work.

Cosmetically at the end of the day the home will be delivered what they had envisioned or seen at model home.

However many of the home buyers of the new construction in the area are surprised when home inspection is completed and they get a list of to dos that needs to be corrected during the course of new construction.

As a local Northern Virginia Realtor I highly recommend to you hire qualified home inspector for various phases of your new construction. This includes:

Foundation, pre-dry wall and final walk thru. Apart from the 3 stated earlier, I also encourage my clients to hire home inspector prior to their first year walk through. This is your final chance to get the issues corrected while you are under one year warranty with the builder.
